The Jacksonville Jaguar offense must change immediately. The offensive scheme is not working and Blake Bortles is not improving.
The Jacksonville Jaguars offense must change after the season’s worst offensive performance. The running game has been pathetic all year. Nothing has been implemented to improve it. Chris Ivory and T.J. Yeldon must be frustrated by the zone blocking scheme and their lack of production.

this to cost Jacksonville any more games.
Offensive Coordinator Greg Olson is predictable in his play calling. He has not shown any imagination with new formations. Maybe, he got the hint that things were not good because the NFL’s worst rated defense beat him. His playbook is too vanilla.
What Jacksonville Can Change About Their Offense
First, put Ivory and Yeldon in the backfield together. Ivory is the lead blocker for Yeldon on sweeps. On pass plays, they give maximum pocket protection. One of them could be designated as the hot receiver. Ivory and Yeldon could ignite the running game if they are in the same backfield.
Second, Julius Thomas and Marcedes Lewis would create mismatches. They can play wide receiver. The wide receiver screen might work better if they were involved. They could be the numbers two and three slot receiver. Olson has to get them opportunities.
Next, Brandon Allen should get a chance to play. If Bortles struggles again in Tennessee, Bradley must give Allen a shot at running the offense. The rookie could inspire the team to play better, it is happening in Dallas and Philadelphia. Blake Bortles is the same guy now as he was, as a rookie, maybe a change is needed.
Finally, the Jaguars win the coin toss and defer. Why? Bradley says that the Jaguars need to score early. Jacksonville needs to be aggressive and receive the opening kickoff. They need to score first and often.
Jacksonville must change the offense to make the playoffs.
